I thought that it was interesting when my neighbor asked me what the decibel level was when my husband was working outside. I actually never thought of it because he is working outside and I figured that all of the drilling that he was doing was good for his ears as he was outside and not in an enclosed space. She told me that her husband had hearing loss and he did the same type of work as my husband did outside. I used to live in sloane residences and when I was there, I knew that since I lived in a high rise that I could do what I wanted to and my husband would be at his garage working and when he would come home late at night he would be in bed when I was already sleeping so it worked out really well for us.
Now that we moved into a home it really has changed the dynamics of the relationship because we both have a lot to say and I know that we are spending a lot of more time near each other within the same space. I know that my husband does not want us to argue and of course I do not want to argue with him either. People always laugh when they hear us speaking to each other out in public but the thing is, that is just how we are with one another and it is really great to know that he would always have my back and I will always have his. While we are kind of play fighting more now than before, I at least know where he is all of the time when he is home and that is always in the garage, the place he wanted for many years.
